You’ve probably heard that free-range chickens are kept in much better conditions compared to battery hens or closed-range farmed chickens. However, did you know that the egg produced by free-range chickens is actually much healthier, too?
Free-range eggs contain:
- 33% less cholesterol
- 25% less saturated fat
- 66% more vitamin A
- Two times more omega-3 fatty acids
- Three times more vitamin E
- Seven times more beta carotene
This may be due to the chickens being less stressed with their greater freedom. Additionally, the chickens peck and eat insects from the ground, adding to their diet.
